Wish I stayed home!

This was the most unappealing and depressing movie I have seen in a long, long time. The setting was so bleak and repulsive, you wanted to go home and take a good shower. I guess I missed the point of this movie! And so much for four stars ratings!!!

10 - Acting, 10 - Story, 10 - Photography/Cinematography,10 - Directing Hushpuppy and Wink will steal your hearts. One of my favorite movies in the last five years. The storyline pulls you in and doesn't let you go. There didn't appear to be any "acting", the scenes and lines were delivered like a docudrama! Oh and the young actress playing Hushpuppy....wow what a performance....unforgettable!

Nothing special

The young actress was endearing but not exceptional and since she was the main attraction for most viewers, I wouldn't go overboard w/ any great praise for the movie. Her lines were actually minimal. I found the story grim.

The movie is relatively dull and pointless. The reviews made me expect to see something profound but it certainly wasn't.

Highly original film. Exquisite sense of place. The actors were terrific. I really enjoyed the music in it as well. If I had any negative criticism, there is an atttempt for the cinematographer to reduce the point of view to that of the child, the result being that some scenes have a very claustrophobic quality to them. I would recommend this film enthusiastically.
